Our electives program at the U.S. Naval War College (NWC) provides the opportunity for students to explore subjects not in the core curriculum, enhance their regional expertise or examine core subjects in greater detail. Students are required to take two elective courses per year to attain a master's degree.
Each academic year the electives program offers approximately 120 courses designed and taught by NWC professors and adjunct professors. An extensive electives program expands the college’s educational offerings and provides additional opportunities for students to explore and investigate not only the core curriculum but subjects and topics that may not be advertised or regularly offered.
